EPA Selects ANSYS For Simulation Software to Develop Advanced Test Engine

Green Car Congress, July 2014

Development of a new fuel-saving and emissions-reducing test engine is under development by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the help of ANSYS simulation software. The goal is to produce an engine that will help meet recently issued fuel standards through improvements to combustion chamber geometries, fuel injection strategies, fuel composition, valve timing and intake conditions. With ANSYS FORTÉ, the EPA can reduce the need for expensive and lengthy physical prototyping in favor of engine design in a virtual setting to reduce both cost and time between design iterations.
